Turn sidewalk attention to save mature trees

Dear Editor,
My congratulations to the City of the Village of Clarkston leadership for the prompt action on repairing the city’s damaged sidewalks. This will make the city safer.
Now, if only they would attend to the problem of the loss of mature trees (they are a major source of pride in the city, contribute to a healthy environment, and add to property values) and the potential spread of several sources of ground contamination (they threaten our health, safety, and property values).
There is so much that must be done!
